What We Do

The Housing Connection (THC) supports people with an intellectual disability to live quality lives in the homes and communities of their choice.

The Housing Connection provides innovative support to adults who have an intellectual or cognitive disability.

Our primary goals are:

• To assist individuals to develop the skills to live as independently and fully as possible in the community and,
• To develop social networks so they can participate meaningfully in their community.

Many of those whom we support also have other disabilities including mental health problems and visual, hearing and physical disabilities.

We work with each individual and their families/carers/advocates to develop support that meets their individual needs and aspirations. We offer community based accommodation support, personalised daytime activities, support that enables individuals to participate in the social, cultural and sporting life of their community and transition to work opportunities.

The object is to reduce the need for long-term support services that encourage dependency. Some people are not able to live without support and they are assisted to enjoy a full and meaningful life.

Funding may come from any number of ADHC funding streams or from individuals, their families or fundraising, but the principle of personalised support is always followed.
